Previous review must be of a diffrent book, this is a work of theology not the historical Jesus.

Fantastic poem of a prisoner thinking about a condemmned man being executed by hanging. Best poem I have read by Oscar Wilde. It is not that long and really gives you the feel of being in prison and watching an execution.

Entertaing story, got a little talky at the as the characters get into slavery and compensation to slaves. Made me wish I had a Lani woman.

Cute mystery story where the characters really make the story. Sci fi based but only slightly as the real story is the characters, even if you don't like scifi I think you will enjoy this book. A great fun read.

An entertaining mystery that I enjoyed reading though in the middle I got a little confused. Still one of the better mysteries I have read.

Amazingly good considering the author is writng about ordianry life in Maine a century ago. I enjoyed the book which is really a colection of a few short stories. Gives a great feel of ordinary life and people enjoying it.

The plots of the stories are not bad but I do not like his writing style. I just cannot get into them. It reads more like a dry history than pulp fiction should.

If you are looking for a reason to dislike Islam, this essay might be for you. It does show the problems with all the great movements of mankind, that no matter how noble they are; we the people who practice them, fail and corrupt them. Certainly a similar essay could be written of Christianity, communism and I am sure Buddhism, Hinduism, Mormoms, and all others I think. It is dated and I would not recommend it.

Andre Noton at her best. Very enjoyable read just a little dated as th main character is very concerend with the Reds taking over with a mind control device in a new world settled by Apaches from the West and mongols from the East with the Mongols under mind control from an alien device. Good story as these groups meet and try to revolt and protect an alien storehouse they find full of who knows what tech marvels.
